The Brazilian scored a wondergoal as the Reds beat reigning Premier League champions Manchester City 2-1 at Anfield on Sunday.
The 22-year-old has also been playing for his national team since the World Cup. He was not picked by former manager Luiz Felipe Scolari for the major tournament. It is unlikely that he will be overlooked for a squad again if he continues this form.
“I think he’s a star in the Premier League already,” said Rodgers. “He joined us for £8.5m three years ago – it’s frightening to know what he could be worth now. He’s a joy to watch and now he’s started scoring goals. He’s a kid who has so much ahead of him in the game.”
The Northern Irishman continued:”He’s 22 and people forget he came to us at 19. He is a sensational footballer and to beat Joe Hart from that angle and with that power was phenomenal. His technique is at a high high level, so he’s going to score a lot more goals.”
The midfielder will want to continue playing well against Burnley in the Merseyside club’s match in mid-week.
